As part of our education programme we offer a range of educational services that provide inspiration and impact on thousands of young people every year.


Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) all future educational visits have been cancelled and we are no longer taking bookings. Please continue to check these pages for updates.

Your class can enjoy a great educational visit to our sanctuary near Sidmouth, Devon. It is home to hundreds of donkeys who can’t wait to meet you and your students. Deepen your students' learning by using the freely downloadable educational activities for before, during and after your visit.

With an offer designed to fit school groups of all shapes and sizes, The Donkey Sanctuary is the perfect educational choice. We provide unique learning sessions for all ages and abilities.

We also deliver engaging and informative assemblies on the international role of The Donkey Sanctuary and its work to secure a better future for the 50 million donkeys and mules worldwide.

Stay informed

We hope you find our educational resources useful. For the future we are looking to develop an educational newsletter that showcases our other curriculum based educational work involving donkeys and the ways you and your school can get involved. When this becomes available we would like to contact you 3 times a year by email with this newsletter.
